75cl * 13.5% ABV * Crete, Greece
Greece is in throes of a vinous renaissance. Gone are the days of dodgy, pine-scented retsina served in even dodgier tavernas - Greek wine is every bit as fine as the great bottles of the rest of Europe. Bracingly fresh and mineral, Assyrtiko has much in common with Albariño, its slight saltiness will set off grilled sea bass stuffed with lemon and herbs. Winner, Best Assyrtiko in Wine & Spirits Magazine 2020.
